Kiecana v Polish Judicial Authority

Extradition – Oppression. The mental health difficulties which the appellant had, which would be exacerbated by his extradition, were not of a gravity that was sufficient to outweigh the public interests. Accordingly, the Administrative Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve the whole of a sentence of one year's imprisonment imposed for an offence committed in 2005 where he obtained proximately £842, at current exchange rates, fraudulently through the use of a forged salary and employment certificate.
